Hrím

A must-visit for every design enthusiast, this is Reykjavik’s standout housewares shop.

The vibe is whimsical and utilitarian at once: flowerpots that look like they’re made of folded paper, elegant wood brooms and dustpans that feel too pretty to use to clean up dirt, combination scarf/mittens that guarantee you won’t spend all winter losing your gloves, and even smoke alarms in pastel shades, which you didn’t know you needed until this exact second. That hard-to-shop-for person who pops up on your Christmas list every year may be conquered forever thanks to Hrím.
